Very nice, but in the original design you can see that the tiles have rounded edges like in this picture I created.

Looks slightly better because of the glow and color in icons but still... NO.

Just wondering - do Google's small icons work separately or they are just eyecandy?

What do you mean by NO? As for the google tile, it's actually an Metro App.

So icons work separately? I assumed that.

Why hello there robot,
My name is Parker and I was wondering why you don't like this design?
Is it maybe because you know you like it?
Maybe because you realize Windows might like the idea and use it?
I think, perhaps, and just maybe its because you cant get off your fat ass and make one better?

Thank you for your time.

(Now you can fucking go somewhere, this guys designs are fucking good. Now explain why NO. Or is it because you can't?)

Hi Parker,
The point is that I fucking hate Metro. It looks awful with it's one-color tiles and icons, also it doesn't fit to desktop at all.
If Windows would have keep it only to tablets and wouldn't put it to desktop computers, I might start to like it. I know I can disable it even with tweaks, but just WHY?! Also, tiles are useless IMO and same huge/one-color Metro design on desktop apps (and tweaks like window themes) is just plain ugly.

Why this design is "NO" is because it looks better but still doesn't convince me to not hate Metro. Probably because other UI elements still use old (default) really ugly Metro style.

As you might assume, I also hate Windows 8 logo (but love Windows 7's).

Thanks for asking,
robotkoer

Awesome new tab isn't awesome :| It's really ugly and the creator does not know what is Metro UI.
